President Donald Trump kicked off his formal reelection campaign Tuesday night with a rally in Orlando. His 76-minute speech featured more than 15 false statements, many of them ones that he's repeated frequently in the past.
Here's a fact check:
Trump boasted about his administration's energy policies.
"And we've ended the last administration's cruel and heartless law on American energy. What they were doing to our energy should never be forgotten. The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world."
"We are, by the way, the number-one producer of energy in the world because of what we've done right now." Facts First: The US was the world's number-one energy producer before Trump took office since 2012, under the very president Trump accused of waging the heartless war.
The government's official source for energy data, the Energy Information Administration, said in 2016: "US petroleum and natural gas production first surpassed Russia in 2012, and the United States has been the world's top producer of natural gas since 2011 and the world's top producer of petroleum hydrocarbons since 2013."
It is crude oil production in particular in which the US became top in the world under Trump, according to the EIA: it surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russia in 2018.
Trump suggested the Russian investigation was illegal and criticized the amount of money it had cost.
"We accomplished more than any other president has in the first two and a half years of a presidency, and under circumstances that no president has had to deal with before, because we did, in the middle of the great and illegal witch hunt, things that nobody have been able to accomplish, not even close."

Why post this?
FACT: CNN SUCKS
Obama did everything he could to stop domestic energy production. You can’t whitewash that. Trump rules. Obama sucked.
CNN Fact checks include Trump’s statements on these issues:
UNEMPLOYMENT AND WAGES
DEMOCRATS’ POSITION ON BORDER SECURITY
RE: Why post this?
So that you can refute CNN.
>>>Why post this?<<<
Because Ignorance is not Bliss.
Just because we look at this with a grain of Salt, many in the Electorate soak it up like a Sponge and they Vote for POTUS Trump’s opponents.
Trump: “The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world.”
CNN: (obfuscating gibberish, then) “It is crude oil production in particular in which the US became top in the world under Trump...”
In other words, what he said was strictly correct, not a lie. I’m not going to bother descending deeper into their septic tank.
Is 15 the number of times the crowd chanted CNN Sucks?
Big Mike agrees...or maybe it's the other way around?
every one of their fact checks is wrong, or misleading.
I can see why Trump always calls them fake news.
But ObaMao's claim that "If you liked your plan, you can keep your plan" was just good salesmanship.
CNN: Go do something to yourself which is anatomically impossible.
Whenever Trump engages in hyperbole for effect the press calls it a lie...
“If you like your doctor, if you like your plan, you can keep it.”
“Now listen to me, I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”
Those lies, and the other lies around them are without question the biggest political lies the US public has had to endure from presidents and administrations in my lifetime... PERIOD.
Your stupid “fact check” over hyperbolic claims for dramatic effect, of Mr Trump don’t even move the meter compared to the lies you tell and perpetuate daily, and the party you endorse have engaged in my entire life.
Pure Hokum on the part of CNN.
We produced more oil and gas DESPITE Obama.
“The United States is now the number-one producer of oil AND natural gas anywhere in the world.”
This dumb@ss doesn’t realize that Trump can say that we are now number one producers for BOTH NG and OIL.
He’s not lying.
Waste of space. What the hell does CNN know about anything? The US was not the world’s number one energy producer until now . I fact, Obama tried desperately to kill it. CNN LIES!
My thoughts exactly
Like anyone could ever trust CNN to fact check anything, They’re joking right?
CNN and Facts are mutually exclusive terms.
